THE INTELLIGENCE CONSPIRACY TO OVERTHROW AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT
Not all of the President's men were busy working in Washington at the time of Watergate. Some were busy “down under”.
One of the most secretive and powerful spy bases in the world lies near the dead centre of Australia. It belongs to the CIA and is the lynchpin of America’s space-based global war machine. In 1975, Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam threatened to close the base. He was overthrown soon after. The CIA has always denied involvement in Whitlam’s downfall, but there is evidence to suggest otherwise. Twelve Miles from Alice is a political thriller set during this chaotic period, and blends fact with fiction to uncover a significant and plausible reason why the CIA (and MI6) wanted Whitlam removed from office.
